Major DL target set to OV the Hogs

Gooden, 6-4, 320 pounds, of Independence Community College in Kansas has approximately 15 scholarship offers, including Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi State, Missouri, Georgia, Missouri and Louisville.

Wow 320 and 6’4". If he has some speed he could be a beast.

He plans to arrive Friday morning.

He’s visiting without his mother. I don’t think that’s good news, especially after he visited Alabama and said their offer was “Heaven.”

Important to note that he and his family were on vacation when he took his unofficial visits to both Alabama and Auburn.

While Alabama is always the recruiting beast, not sure mom coming along is a big factor.

Interesting that Alabama told him to take his time.

I think the key to gooden is Sosa.

I know they are big buds. I imagine they got to know each other in high school going to camps and what not.

I think it helps, but he knows several others on other teams too. Because of camps and combines along with social media kids get to know one another.

I like that Bama told him to take his time so he probably doesn’t have a “committable” offer. I hope that opens his eyes and causes a realistic view of his options.
